I want to recommend a book I reviewed this weekend: Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration. Written by 5 BizTalk Server experts Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration is a new book from Packt. It is a guide to integrating BizTalk with leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems like SAP and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 as well as with other systems such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM, SalesForce.com Windows Azure AppFabric Service Bus to name a few.
This book starts off by laying the technical foundation of WCF-LOB adapters, and gradually moves on to an overview of how to integrate with Microsoft SQL Server using the WCF based SQL Server adapter. You get to know how to integrate BizTalk Server with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, build BizTalk/SAP integrated solutions using IDocs, and the differences between IDocs and RFCs/BAPIs as well.
After reading this book, you will be able to build BizTalk solutions that complement Microsoft’s Service Bus in the Windows Azure Cloud and also integrate SharePoint solutions with the help of Windows SharePoint Services Adapter and SharePoint Web Services.
This book addresses a long standing demand from BizTalk developers that usually browse MSDN and the internet to find guidance on how using BizTalk to integrate the LOB systems most commonly used by companies.
